Through the “SnitchPay” feature powered by BharatX, customers will be able to pay for their purchases in three instalments, instead of paying the entire amount at once, with no extra added cost or interest, bringing affordability and convenience to the customers.
Snitch was founded in 2019 as a B2B men’s apparel brand, which later ventured into the D2C and e-commerce fashion industry with 30 products in June 2020. It offers over 2,500 styles of fast-fashion apparel, featuring formal wear, party wear, and leisure wear among others.
Snitch is one of BharatX’s partners enabling BharatX’s white-labelled BNPL option on its checkout. BharatX will offer Pay-In-3 feature to Snitch buyers via a Shopify plug-in. The customers will only need to pay one-third of the total billing amount at the time of payment; the remaining amount can be paid over two months. The transactions will be carried out through a secure gateway and all communication will take place via WhatsApp only, without the need of visiting any other app. With this, BharatX is empowering customers with convenience, security and a smooth buying journey on Snitch’s platform. Looking ahead, BharatX plans to offer Pay-In-3 as a feature to the other e-commerce companies, D2C and Fintech Brands.
The BharatX “Pay-In-3” plug-in can be integrated in under five minutes. BharatX has one of the highest approval rates in the industry at up to 60%, a high approval rate means an increased access to credit for those who need it and deserve it the most. It is the start-up’s vision to democratise credit for the 250 million middle class Indians.
